We all know and love the work of author Amy Krouse Rosenthal (Spoon, I Wish You More, Dear Girl, Little Pea and more) and while her life may have ended way too soon, her catalog of creative works lives on to inspire. Can we create like Amy--Bravely? Humorously? With heart? How can we shape our days and nights doing our best work?
In this 6-week class, award-winning children’s author Marcie Colleen (Love, Triangle and Penguinaut!), will guide writers through a deep dive into Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s body of work: her many children's books, adult memoirs, TED Talks, films, and projects to connect with Amy's clever wit and love-affirming spirit and bring our own talents, inspired by Amy’s, to the page.
